Isolux Overview BrochureSource: Isolux Technologies, A Division of MEL Chemicals, Inc.
Isolux™ Technologies, a division of MEL Chemicals, Inc. (MEL) has developed and patented a novel, zirconium-based adsorbent media for removal of arsenic and other heavy metals from drinking water. This media is customized for this application in MEL’s Flemington, NJ manufacturing facility by systematically manipulating the morphology and surface properties of the zirconia species to produce an adsorbent with very high capacity and good kinetics for removal of arsenic. This is accomplished via control of the chemical and physical properties, specifically the surface properties. MEL’s manufacturing technology produces particles with enhanced pore volume and surface area for optimum removal of arsenic. MEL has adopted the trademark Isolux™ for this technology when applied to drinking water applications.
